As Sean Connery is to James Bond 007, so Rathbone is to Sherlock Holmes!
Yeah, Daniel Craig is the 007 du jour (and he is good, make no bones about it).
But, when you see the name in print or hear the theme, who do you picture?
Be honest, it's Connery...Sean Connery!
I'm looking forward to the Robert Downey jr flick, but the image that still comes to mind when "Sherlock" is uttered is the man who was the face (and distinctive voice) of the erudite, eloquent Holmes for generations...Basil Rathbone!
So celebrate Sherlock in general, and Rathbone in particular, with this new 2010 12-month calendar featuring a Baker Street dozen movie posters and lobby cards featuring Rathbone as Holmes along with Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson and Dennis Hoey (yeah, I thought it was "Hooey", too) as Inspector Lestrade!
"The calendar's afoot, Watson!"
